New work

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Howdy people! Soooo, below are a couple things I wanted to share with you all. They are recent works I’ve made. Enjoy….

Tomorrow night at the United States Art Authority, No Comply’s Second Annual Board Design Contest will be taking place put on by Art Seen Alliance and of course, No Comply. I’ve seen a few entrees from a couple pals and I gotta say, I have been blown away by them. Here are my two submissions for the contest.

Here is something I submitted for The Screamer Company’s latest art zine titled “FOUR.” The release party for FOUR will take place on July 31 at TSC headquarters.

Lastly, a while back I designed an album cover for the Hope Campaign’s tribute album. Well that album is out now and you can view the tracks and purchase it here. Below are a couple pictures of the design.


Well, I’m outta here. I hope you all have a great weekend!

New Bike/Drawing/Far Away Daughter

Friday, June 18th, 2010

My pal Randy recently gave me this old fuji bike frame.

With the help of my other pal, and studiomate Renee AND the fine people at Fast Folks, I was able to turn this old beat up bike into a pretty sweet machine!!

I am now addicted to riding a bike!

Here is a drawing I made recently. I made it using sharpie and Prisma pencils on paper. I may or may not have been heavily influenced by my friend Jillian’s recent drawings that include a ton of prisma pencils.

Lastly my family is still in California and Sunday is father’s day =(  This means I’ll especially be missing my little peanut like crazy. Here is a recent picture that Giselle took of Chamila playing at a park.

FRIDAY ART: Stool Sample 2

Friday, May 7th, 2010

A while back I painted on an old broken stool that turned out looking pretty neat.

I called it “blue eyes crying in wood grain.” Clever eh? I gave that stool to my good pal and excellent photographer, Justin. Not too long ago I got my hands on another similar stool and decided to make another fun beardy face on that as well. I’ve decided that painting on anything made of wood is where it’s at!

FRIDAY ART: Get swell mon

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Hi there. It’s been a little while. My family recently went to California so that is giving me a lot of “me” time. After uncontrollable weeping for the first few days I have managed to stop my waterworks and make a few things. Here is a new graphic I conjured up to try to get people to not have such a shitty time here on earth.

Here is another drawing I made recently. Actually, I made it this morning at about 4am with my good ol’ lumber crayon.

Also, Giselle set up a small mini store within the new and improved Moxie on East 11th Street. The grand opening is tomorrow from 11am to 6pm. Make sure to check it out.

Also, tonight at Industry Print Shop the amazing Jared Connor of Mexican Chocolate will have a poster show/live printing event. You all should go to that.

Let’s see what else…. Oh yes, I miss this little creature so, SO bad.

Have a great weekend and stay swell my friends.

Friday Art: Chami’s Board

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

Recently wife picked up a little nash board for daughter at a thrift store.

The size was perfect but the graphic on the back was not so perfect.

I asked daughter what she wanted me to paint on her board in place of the not-so-cool graphic and she told me “A pupcake and a horse.”

She helped me strip the back of the old graphic.

Then I sketched it out.

And voila. Pictures of daughter riding it to follow.

Friday Art: TOMS Shoe Paint-off

Friday Art: The Chase

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

My pal Tony recently had a little baby girl. He commissioned me to make a painting for the little peanut’s room. I had a lot of fun making it.

I hope she grows up to wear top hats and mustache bow ties.

Tony is co-owner of print addiction, they throw art show/parties and print artists’ work on tees. There’s one going on as I type this. So if you are in the Austin area and want to get a The Amazing Hancock Bros t-shirt and possibly buy some of their art, you should go. You should probably leave now. Have fun kids.

FRIDAY ART: HOPE Farmers Market Poster

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Have you heard of HOPE? They’re awesome. They help other people EVERYWHERE! We (mostly Giselle because she’s AWESOME) have been tabling the new HOPE farmers market here in East Austin recently. It’s pretty awesome. Andi, who runs HOPE, asked me to be the very first artist to make a poster for their poster series. I agreed and started sketching ideas right away.

I liked a few of the ideas but I LOVED good ol’ Mon holding a flower, so I chose to develop that one further. This is the drawing I did on vellum.

I scanned that in and colored it up and the rest is my story.

HOPE Poster2.3

Come by the farmers market this sunday from 11am to 3pm to say hello and maybe get a poster.
